While the filmmaking shows natural skill, the movie lacks the energy and passion needed to really engage the audience.

While clocking in at a relatively painless 75 minutes, Brown fails to come up with anything so fresh and bold in his approach as to make a single one of those worth watching.

Self-consciously edgy and romantically limp.

A wisp of a film, dramatically threadbare, and saddled with a brittle and affected performance by Williams.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Brown is never clear enough on how he feels about his own characters.

I nearly gave up after an incredibly awkward, self-conscious first five minutes, but eventually writer/director Russell Brown finds his groove and sustains it for a long while.

Brown's screenplay and direction, both economical and unshowy, sketch character dynamics in crisp terms that resist the temptation to explain all, beg sympathy or heighten drama for purely histrionic purposes.

An illuminating glimpse into some of the more challenging complications that contemporary relationships can present.

Although more than a little familiar in its road movie-style romantic banter and bickering, the film is easy to take for a number of reasons, including the witty and frequently caustic dialogue.
